Glitter Inlay

Very good morning to you! I hadn't had much time to work on cards this week so in between loads of laundry today I am going to play a little. My first card today was a mish-mash of 3 different challenges but I still wanted to stay true to my CAS design. I started with the My Favorite things Color and Sketch Challenges then thru in the Papertrey Ink Make-it-Monday Challenge #334 of glitter inlay.

 I will warn you this is a photo heavy post.
I started with a top folding, 110 lbs white card base. I die cut the banner die from PTI's Sketched Shapes set, doing partial die cutting. You can see my pencil lines that I measured out before cutting.

I forgot to take a picture of a panel of Strathmore Bristol card stock that I blended the ink colors on. I used PTI's Spring Rain, Classic Kraft, SU Ballet Blue and Altenew's Crimson inks. After blending I placed an Elizabeth Craft double sided adhesive over the panel and attached it to the inside on the card front.

Then I took glitter and rubbed it over the adhesive. I used one of the die cut banners to stamp my greeting from MFT's YAY For You set and attached it to the card front with foam tape to pop it up.

This also fits the CAS My Favorite Things Birthday Project Challenge. 

Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
